Article:

The plurality of the artistic universe and the history of graphic design, illustration and drawing in Portugal between 1940 — a year where two strong artistic currents arise: neo-realism and surrealism — and 1974 — a changing year in our history — encounter in José Maria Lima de Freitas’s (1927-1998) works the paradigmatic time and ways where many artists, coming from a neo-realism generation, evolve different paths, in particular surrealism, as the author. This paper’s purpose is to introduce Lima de Freitas and his artistic path focusing on his work as a Portuguese illustrator. This activity that he practiced, developed and perfected over thirty years in the XXth century, enlightening with expertise some of the greatest and most remarkable Portuguese and foreign writers. He was able to adapt and interpret expressively each author, always finding the perfect insertion in the writing of different periods of time and respective creators. Due to the multiplicity of Lima de Freitas´s legacy, the books with his drawings have been catalogued, a bibliographical inventory that unites the most significant images for each of his illustrated works, allowing to recognize the polygraphy where can be found the fundamental thread of his work as an image thinker.
